Guided Tours inside Villa Maraini
Entrance: Via Liguria 20

Villa Maraini opens its doors and welcomes visitors as part of the tenth edition of Open House Roma, the annual event that in just one weekend celebrates the architecture and design of the Capital, allowing the free opening of hundreds of buildings notable for their architectural features.

A jewel of early twentieth-century Rome, the headquarters of Istituto Svizzero is a villa in eclectic style that was built in 1905 by architect Otto Maraini for his brother Emilio Maraini, an industrialist and sugar producer from Ticino. The building and its gardens stand on an artificial hill – originally a landfill – that offers a panoramic view of the city from one of the districts of the historic center of Rome, in close proximity to the Spanish Steps and Villa Borghese.

The visit will also be the occasion to see the exhibition Real Estate by Mai-Thu Perret on view within the spaces of Villa Maraini and in the garden.

Istituto Svizzero,
Via Liguria 20, Rome
